Friday Snippets

This has been quite a week. There’s been all the excitement coming out of GAMA, with lots of great announcements being made. And tomorrow I’ve got Board Game Day up at the library. I’m feeling a bit drained from it all. Better nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Halfsies Dice – The World Tour On Kickstarter, Blacksmith Miniatures: World of Jean-Baptiste Monge On Kickstarter, The Adventurer’s Collection Tabletop Soundtrack on Kickstarter, New Hammer Objective Markers Available From Kromlech, Syrinscape Announces License for Starfinder RPG, New 6mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles Released, and Gaming Accessories Weekend Promo Happening At Bits of War.

Midweek Snippets

Well… that was a bit of an adventure.
For those interested in keeping track, Monday I noticed my car had a coolant leak. Tuesday I took it into the shop. They originally said, “it’ll just be a couple hours.” Then they said, “it’ll be overnight (they needed a part).” So, seeing as I was clear on the other side of town, I crashed at a friend’s place (as a 50mi walk home didn’t sound fun), picked up my car this morning, and am now back into the office. Hooray!

You know what I could use? A snack. Or at least some snack-sized gaming stories.

Hey! Look what we’ve got here!

In today’s Snippets we have: Collins Epic Wargames introduces Milestone Rewards for Polyversal, Cast Metal Gaming Dice on Kickstarter, FatMan Productions Posts New Previews For Awakening Recon, Frostgrave Fan Base Launched, Blacksmith Miniatures release: the apothecary, Photos from Nuremberg Spielwarenmesse 2016, Malifaux translated to Italian, The Circle of Chaos Kickstarter Going On Now, Shipping Update from Nexus Miniatures, Titan-Forge releases new Void Cannon, Last Couple of Days for Era: The Consortium Kickstarter, and Coming on 13th Feb – Era: Lyres Pocket Edition – a £1 Tabletop RPG.

Friday Snippets

Well, after the fake-out that was on yesterday (a cruel trick by Wednesday in making me feel that the day after would be Friday, when it obviously wasn’t), we have made it to the real Friday. It’s going to be a busy one for me. I’ve gotta make a cheesecake tonight for a friend’s birthday tomorrow, as well as raspberry and white chocolate syrups to go with it. Yes, it’s all homemade.

As for other things you can cut up and eat in a single bite, here’s some snippets I’ve come across in the past couple days.

This batch includes: Blacksmith Miniatures Releases Morbag The Goblin, Another World Miniatures: Painting Contest, Wild West Exodus Previews New Render, and New Wargames Vehicle range released from Waugh Games.

Give yourself a pat on the back. You’ve made it to another Wednesday. We’re halfway to the weekend. If you have any mid-week gaming plans, we’d love to hear about it down in the comments. Over the next couple days, I’ll be prepping for the D&D game I’m running on Saturday. Last session, the group narrowly avoided TPK twice. So obviously, I need to up my game some.

blacksmith miniatures release: “ARSNIK” and “CLIO et ERATO”

Blacksmith Miniatures has two new minis at rather opposite ends of the spectrum available over in their webshop. The first is Arsnik the Shaman, a goblin with a big, mushroom staff and a boar’s skin for a hat. The other is Clio and Erato, two women sharing a… rather special moment, it would seem, bonding over learning to hold a firearm.
Well… something for everyone, I guess.
